Does anybody really think that Davin Bellamy will pick Florida State over Vanderbilt on Saturday?
Bellamy is a 6-foot-4, 235-pound defensive end from Chamblee High School who is one of the state’s most-heavily recruited college prospects with 33 football scholarship offers. His first offer was from Georgia Tech, and he also claims a UGA offer.
At Chamblee’s media day shortly after noon on Saturday, Bellamy will commit to either Florida State or Vanderbilt.
Who do you think Bellamy will pick? We’ve been wrong before, but how often does Vanderbilt beat out FSU for a top recruit?
We asked Bellamy: Are any of his friends predicting a Vanderbilt upset? “Well, they do think with my personality, I will go to Vanderbilt and be the man as soon as I step on campus. But most people know my dream is to play in the NFL, and most people think Florida State would get me there. Therefore, a lot of people think I will pick Florida State.”
I guess that Bellamy’s hint, or his own prediction, on what will unfold on Saturday.
He also had this to say earlier this week about recently visiting both Vanderbilt and Florida State with his mother: “From an academic standpoint, Vanderbilt went better. From a football standpoint, FSU … 33 straight years of winning seasons, 27 straight years of NFL first-round draft picks. Once you walk into FSU, you know it’s a football town. It’s ridiculous.”
